16 Days of Activism

Orange the World

The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women is 25th November and marks the start of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, an international campaign initiated in 1991 to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign has a theme of Orange the World and SI Heswall members wore orange at a recent meeting to mark this. Orange was chosen as the symbol of a brighter future free from violence against women and girls.
